Holiday Inn Express San Diego - Escondido
Ranked #7 of 16 Hotels in Escondido
Reviewed 28 August 2005

Good value for the cost. Close to the Wild Animal Park which is the best thing about this hotel. The free breakfast is pretty good....nothing to get too excited about. Hotel staff workers are very nice.

There are lots of fast food places near and a good shopping center across the street is convienent. Close to the freeway, (maybe too close b/c you can hear the noise), with plenty of free parking.

The negative things about this place are the hot hallways, the tiny and smoke-smelling elevator and the sad-looking stray cats that live in the embankment next to the hotel. The poor cats are starving....they'll eat anything, (lettuce even), that you throw to them.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Escondido over the weekend of Aug 6th and it was great. The reception staff was polite and helpful. They always had a smile and seem eager to help. The suite was very big and had a tasteful decor. Everything was very clean- the beds, bathroom, kitchenette. The kitchenette was well stocked with supplies.

The complimentary breakfast was wonderful and had enough variety for adults to kids.

It was great. I recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to stay within 15 mins of the Wild Animal Park.

Only negative thing I can think of is that the location is not great - no view etc. However, fast food joints and stores are very close by.

New, clean, with lots of amenities! Friendly staff,
full breakfast, gym, and nice pool. Sits right next
to an Elephant Bar Restaurant which you receive
coupons for a free drink during "Happy Hour".
What more could you ask for?

Overall, this hotel offered a good experience. We stayed in a king suite which offers 2 rooms and a kitchenette for a very reasonable price. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I can recommend it for families because it is located in close proximity to many san diego attractions. We were 10 minutes from the wild animal park, 30 minutes from down town San Diego and aprox. 15-20 minutes from legoland. The continental breakfast was good and my 7 year old loved it. My biggest complaint is that there wasnt much of a courtyard , the "veiw" was of a freeway, block wall and storage facility, and that the actual location(by this I am referring to mostly the scenic aspect) was crammed behind a bunch of fast food restaraunts and a convenience store.
I still think overall the price was right and it was an enjoyable stay.
